Alienware updates their desktop offerings with Broadwell-E processors
Alienware might've missed Computex last month but the company is back at full force for E3 2016. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Alienware, they are announcing a couple of new products that take advantage of the latest and greatest the industry has to offer.
Firstly, it is the Alienware 13 OLED which is a first of it's kind. Alienware says they are the first to put an OLED display on a gaming laptop and this means that the display on the Alienware 13 OLED has an impressive 100,000: 1 contrast ratio to deliver the best viewing experiences. The QHD OLED touch display is designed in partnership with Samsung so you can expect a good display.
The Alienware 13 OLED can be configured with 6th generation Core i5 and i7 processors paired with up to 16GB of DDR3L memory. In terms of graphics horsepower, there is the option of a GX 960M with 2GB of video memory or the GTX 965M with 4GB of video memory. Price begins at US$ 1,299 (~MYR 5,400)
Next up in line is the Alienware Alpha which is the smallest gaming pc from Alienware. What's interesting about this new model is that in select models, Dell is including an additional port than enables Alienware's Graphic Amplifier that will enable this tiny pc to run VR and 4K games.
Alinware's new console sized PC can be configured with 6th generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM and can be configured with either a GTX 960 or Radeon R9 M470X graphics card. Pricing for the Alienware Alpha begins at US$ 599 (~MYR 2,500)
And finally, we have the two Alienware tower computers. Most notably is that both systems can be configured with dual graphics from either AMD or Nvidia. The Alienware Aurora (pictured above) is a more mainstream system that starts at US$ 799 (~MYR 3,300) and begins with a Core i3 processor paired with 8GB of DDR4 memory. Whereas the Alienware Area 51 is the more extreme on that will only come with the new Broadwell-E processors that intel unveiled during Computex 2016. The Area 51 will begin at US$ 1,699 (~MYR 7,000)
